Woodturning Course

Read about the safety precautions we've put in place for our Courses.

Important: if you or anyone in your household has a high temperature or a new and continuous cough, even if it's mild, you should stay at home.

Learn a new skill or build your woodturning skills and confidence at Turners Retreat!

Held at our store in Harworth, near Doncaster, this is an instructional two-day hands-on course with our woodturning tutor, Mick Hanbury. No prior knowledge is needed on this course. Suitable for people of all abilities - from the very beginner right up to the advanced woodturner.

Over the two-day course, you will learn how to pick the correct tools for your work, wood selection and basic sharpening. If you are new to woodturning, our tutor will guide you step-by-step and support you in creating your first project! For the more experienced woodturner, you'll have the opportunity to learn new techniques, develop your skills and ask our specialist any questions you may have.

Our facilities include all personal safety protection and our fully insured workshop is equipped with a powerful, high efficiency dust extraction system. All materials required for the course are included.

To top off this excellent course, you will also receive a 10% discount off selected products you wish to buy from our store on the day!

We also advise that you wear comfortable, sturdy shoes and clothes you don't mind getting a bit dusty. Please note, woodturning smocks will not be provided during this time but you are welcome to bring your own if you have one.

The day runs from 10am to 4pm with a break in the middle for lunch. We ask that you try to arrive between 9:30am - 9:45am to familiarise yourself with the safety precautions in-store, meet the other students and have an initial chat with your tutor before the course begins.
